About Us 

The aim of the Tropical Health Research Unit for Nursing and Midwifery Practice (THRU) is to contribute to innovation and excellence in care by fostering a culture of inquiry amongst nurses and midwives, assisting them to fulfil their professional responsibilities with regard to undertaking nursing research, and by participating in and engaging with research, thereby ensuring that their daily nursing and midwifery practices incorporate the best available evidence.

The THRU is a partnership between the Townsville Hospital and Health Service and Nursing, Midwifery and Nutrition, James Cook University, and an affiliate of the Centre for Nursing and Midwifery Research, James Cook University. It will advance clinical nursing and midwifery research at the Townsville Hospital and Health Service and James Cook University, and is comprised of staff from both the health service and university sectors. We will contribute to, and collaborate with, the core business of the Townsville Hospital and Health Service and James Cook University.

Objectives of the unit include:

  • to promote, foster and support the health of people living in the areas served by James Cook University and Townsville Hospital and Health Service;
  • to actively seek research ideas;
  • to foster research engagement across clinical, academic and commercial sectors, and the community.
